Busy Month for Obama Campaign with Fundraisers in Switzerland, Sweden, Paris and Communist China

  1. I do not know his full schedule but Mitt will be oversease later this month. He will have two high-dollar fundraisers in London while he’s in town to attend the Summer Olympics. I am thinking of going to his a private dinner where the price of admission is a contribution ranging between $25,000 and $75,000. Anyone else out there planning to attend?

    After that he is also set to attend at least one runraiser in Israel.

    1. Too bad the Reps are afraid to bring up George Soros when Dems are smearing Romney for having money. What are they so afraid of?

    2. I plan to make one of the fundraisers. I want to hear what he has on his mind about the economy. Most important to me are his ideas on the special tax rules (tax breaks) for American expats. As Britain is the #1 home for US expats, with many who work for banks etc., he might bring in some real money at the fundraisers here.

      The election results will be another story. Like 2004, I expect Obama to receive 2/3 or more of the expat vote this fall. Mitt will do a little better in London but he has no chance of winning even here.

  2. By the way, I should also point out that two of Mitts sons appeared at a fundraiser for dad in May in Hong Kong. I guess money raising runs in the family.

  3. Funny, I always thought it was illegal to receive funds from overseas. I guess that doesnt matter if you are Lord Obama.

    1. “I always thought it was illegal to receive funds from overseas.”

      It is illegal if the person giving the money is a citizen of that country (citizen of any country other than the US). It is also illegal to receive the money in the US if the person giving it is not a US citizen.

      It IS legal to receive money from overseas if it comes from a US citizen who is living in some other country. There are many thousands of US citizens living in London, for example because of the big money they can make here, and probably every other country on earth. It is totally legal for them to give Romney money at a fundraiser held in London. The fact that the fundraiser is in London and not ina place like New York City is of no legal importance as long as the cash comes from a US citizen. Mitt should be able to go home with millions from his fundraisers in London alone plus see some of the Olympics on the side.

      The same rules apply to Obama.
